Gillian and Stephen, a Scottish couple with a passion for Italy, dreamed of a romantic luxury wedding in Venice. Stefano Lunardi is an Italian wedding photographer and was the couple’s perfect choice to capture their memories of the day.
The youngest of five, Gillian’s brother’s and sisters all chose a traditional Scottish wedding, but Gillian and Stephen chose to take a little piece of Scotland to Venice for their special day. With her family’s tartan adorning her shoes, Gillian was piped down the aisle to her soon-to-be husband, who was dressed in his own family’s tartan with a traditional Scottish kilt. With so much excitement in the air, Stephen and his best man had tried out their own version of a Highland fling earlier in the day, which photographer Stefano had managed to perfectly capture!
The day was a pure delight from start to finish. The couple chose a dreamy location on the edge of a lagoon to say their vows and then had a moment to themselves as they took a boat ride around the island.
They continued their celebrations well into the night and then into the next day when they had a second photo shoot in the city, around Piazza S.marco, the old market and the Florian cafe. This is such a good idea, giving you the wedding day celebrating with your guests and then another leisurely day to spend making sure you get all the photos you want.
A gorgeous day, full of fun and laughter, the images really convey the beauty of the location as well as the happiness of the newlyweds.
